“At the KTCS9 20th Anniversary evening tonight, Robert announced to a small crowd that a brand new, 1 hour Red Dwarf episode had been commissioned by BBC Worldwide, to be filmed in October 2008.
He wouldn’t spoil the storyline, but did mention that Grant Naylor was finalising the script right now.
I was in the audience, it was a good night, with not too many people, and plenty of chances for questions.
It was recorded by KTCS9 for a future DVD.
Thanks Robert, I enjoyed the evening and your Kochanski walk.”
Whatever any of us might think if a Series IX really did come that was like this… it’s bloody superb. The use of deleted scenes and the PBS material from the VIII DVD is incredibly well put together, and the way it builds to a climax is absolutely stunning for a fan trailer.
But the best use of DVD material has to come at exactly two minutes in…
With “thanks” to alt.tv.red-dwarf, here is Craig Bierko interviewing John Malkovich in a bathtub. (It’s a few months old now, so apologies if you’ve already seen this… or, indeed, apologies if you haven’t seen it.)
